2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
No bottle date. I think this should be listed as an APA rather than a Fruit beer, as itís identified by the brewer as a Pale.
Turbid orange with loosely associated soapy whites around the rim and an etched surface. Nose is way hoppier than I had anticipated: dank, grapefruit, resin, some orange if I beg for it, but not particularly evident. If they didnít say there was fruit, I wouldnít guess it. Flavor is bitter, with some fruity character (mostly bitter grapefruit), not much more than resin and some biscuity undertones of malt. More like an IPA for me. Medium bodied with reserved carbonation and a semi dry finish. This is drinkable, but more like a sub par PNW IPA rather than a specially concocted fruit infused pale ale.

White and frothy head. Hazy, orange-mocha body. Dry, grapefruit and orange flavor. Grainy, but really good. I really enjoyed it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a yellow haze. Really yellow, not gold. Interesting to look at. The head was relatively short lived. Lots of wheat, pithy orange and an underlying grassy sweetness.

On tap. Very cloudy yellow. Nice spicy nose. Clean spicy attack, fruit is there but in the background where it belongs. Yumm.

Bottle with Carla from Belmont Station. Pours a very hazy grapefruit color with lots of white foam. Smells citrusy of blood oranges/grapefruit as well as hints of citrusy hops and some mild wheat. Tastes like sparkling hopped grapefruit juice.

Its beautiful and it smells great, smells like real orange!, but otherwise the flavor is lacking and comes across as a decent strong ale only.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Blind Tiger 12.20.2012 with Andy, James, Christian, Maggi. Dark orange pour. Tropical/citrus fruits abound. Grapefruit, mango, etc. Not sure if I can pick out orange zest/peel but interesting palate nevertheless. Unfortunately only tried a sip or two, but I liked it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared with Drsilverworm at his flat when I had visited Cincy. Its a sediment-heavy tannish orange complexion; off-whitened head that grew and dropped like youthful spirits. Smells predominately of pine nuts, orange peels (incredibly distinct); lemon-scented fabric softener, Amarilla hops and malt. Tastes delicately of wood rosin, tangerines, spiciness/yeast, sea salt and cashews.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Stagís Head. Pours hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma of sweet oranges, mostly the juice and rind, not the pith, and grassy hops. Taste is lightly hoppy and grassy with a good amount of citrus, mostly grapefruit and orange. Body is very light, almost a little watery. Wish the blood orange was a little more prominent. Bitter finish.
